was thinking, while i understand the students aspirations to possibly become doctors, vets, etc. but they too should take a stand - how powerful that would be....

Done, thanks. Seven med schools in North American still practicing on live animals is seven too many, but it is progress.

If humans care to look beyond their food table, and their sheer stupidity, they would learn that there have been studies which have proved…

Pigs are omnivores and are highly social and intelligent animals.
Pigs lead complex social lives that behaviorists once believed to be true only of primates.
Pigs use their grunts to communicate with each other.
Pigs have a good sense of direction, and can find their way home from long distances.
They learn from watching one another. They form close bonds with each other and other species. Pigs enjoy close contact and will lie close together when resting.
Pigs outsmart each other. One will often follow another pig to food before grabbing it away from him, and the pig who was tricked will change behaviors to reduce how many times it is tricked.
Mother pigs “sing to their piglets” while they are nursing.
Piglets learn their names by two to three weeks of age and respond when called.
Pigs rank #4 in animal intelligence behind chimpanzees, dolphins and elephants.
Pigs dream.

Say no to experimenting, abusing, killing or farming of pigs!!
Respect their intelligence!!
Respect the Pig!!
